Hi,

I am not sure how to ask this question so maybe telling you the history of what I did will help.

In one of the previous Quantum versions I wanted a different look for tabs and general layout. At that time I found a web page that covered what I was looking for. As I recall, there was some 'text' that I cut and pasted into a folder. That produced the layout you see in the attached screen cap image.

Since the Quantum versions have been updated I would like to remove the layout change previously installed and have the current traditional Firefox layout.

I have searched but am unable to find the original information.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

При сохранении страницы в закладки с помощью CRTL+D отображается частичный скриншот сохраняемой страницы на развороте с настройками закладки. Экран моего нетбука невелик и если в настройках сохраняемой закладки развернуть список папок для выбора, то кнопки "Готово" и "Отмена" уходят за нижний край экрана. В этой ситуации очень неудобно сохранять закладки. И, на мой взгляд, этот урезаный скриншот сохраняемой страницы абсолютно бессмыленный и бесполезный. Подскажите, пожалуйста, можно ли как-то отключить его показ?

Hello, I just successfully downloaded Firefox Portable. The Wizard asked if I wanted it to load right up. I did. Nothing happened other than a very brief splash screen. I confirmed the exe's location. I set up a shortcut on Windows. I double click on it. I get the splash screen for a second or so. Then nothing. Anyone? Thank you much. I have run malware checks. I have added a firewall exception. I am flat out of ideas.

I got a nasty malware infection today, from [stupidly] downloading a file. The app installed all sorts of garbage all over the place including taking over Firefox and replacing Google search results with its own.

I'd been meaning to reformat + clean install Windows 7 anyway, so I did so immediately.

Now on the fresh install, I can log in to Firefox Sync, and all my logins are intact, however, my hundreds of bookmarks are "gone" and the Bookmark Toolbar won't let me add anything new to it either.

The thing is, the bookmarks *DO* still exist in FF on my Android... but as I understand there's no way to export bookmarks from mobile... (at least not without hacky-looking apps?)

I'm worried that it's going to sync "the wrong way" and delete them from the Android, but on the other hand, the strange toolbar behaviour might mean the data's still there but "stuck" or corrupt?

Any suggestions?

I'm on Windows 7 Home, running Firefox ESR 52/64-bit (same as previously).

Fx 63.0.3 in Linux. I added a tab close button (hovered) colored background. It's not necessarily same W x H as the inactive button transparent background - which is fine.

I'd like to move the (inactive) 'X' close to the tab right end (did move it - not necessarily easiest way). The bottom of red background in hovered state needs to be close to the tab bottom & even with the tab's right end / side, for a better, easier target to close. I did that - more or less. :)

The issue (that may have no solution) is the inactive button's transparent BG is 20x20px, I believe. So far, unless I make the hovered, colored background the same size as the inactive button's , it distorts the 'X' when the red background appears. So the button is semi-fixed? When hovered, it doesn't "translate" the X icon in the same HxW. Yes, people are starving in Africa & we're worried about pretty browsers.

I assume because the inactive close button has different dimensions and margins than the added background does, the only way I can get the "legs" of the 'X' near the tab border is enter different margins for it than for the hovered, colored background?

  • Question on the last part: *When you have a 20x20 button, originally positioned so the 'letter X' was ~ 5 - 7px from the border / end, what does Firefox "do" w/ the transparent part of the button, when you enter margins so the 'X' is very near the right tab border (right end of the moz-box or container)?
  • Does it in effect, 'remove' part of the transparent button, as different margins are entered, to move the button closer & closer to the container's end?

It appears the default close button's 'X' is 10px WxH. Since browser toolbox showed the button was 20x20px - I think, then it has a 5px margin? on all sides of the 'X' image.

The main goals are:

  • 1. Get more room for text on tabs. I also changed margins on the tab icons to move them near the tab left border & disabled tab text fadein.
  • 2. Have a clickable background to close tabs - that lines up at the tab bottom, right corner & not have to "fish around" for the close button. I have that.

So far, unless I make the hovered background the exact dimensions of the button, then use the exact margins on both, it will distort the X - depending on how different in size the inactive & hovered sizes are.

I couldn't find a CSS property / feature that would allow *the original* X close button to shift up or left (undistorted), when the hovered background appears.

Maybe the original close button could be hidden during hover and a new close button specified (adding a colored BG) with a new size? Say, 15x20 (or 30)? As long as the hovered BG is near the bottom, right corner.

  • I think whatever space is occupied by the width of the transparent button edge (plus padding, if any), dictates how far the tab's text can extend to the right? Once hovered, I don't care if more or less text shows, since I'll be closing the tab, not reading it.
  • If that's true, I could modify / create an overall smaller inactive close button - allowing more text on tabs. Or just "remove" the *inactive state* close button, & specify the same close button (plus red BG) for the hovered state.

I'm not sure how hard it would be.

It was kind of tedious, figuring out how much negative margin values to enter (for 2 different element sizes), so they both wound up (nearly) equidistant from the tab R end. Key word being "nearly". I didn't want the 'X' touching or almost - the tab divider line. But I want the hovered background touching it, to make an easier closing target.

In blown up screenshot(sss), it seemed if I measured the distance between the close button visible 'X' and the tab's R border (say 7px), if I entered 5px, the visible 'X' moved, but NOT so it was 2px from the R border. It seemed something else was affecting it.

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button { /* move inactive close button closer to tab R-end */

 margin-top: 5px !important;
 margin-right: -10px !important;
 margin-left: 0px !important;

}

I run a computer on Windows XP. I have been hesitant to update my version of Firefox because of this problem. My last, fully functional, version of Firefox was version 42.0.x and I have just updated to version 52.9.0 (32-bit). if you need further information about my computer or anything else related to this issue please do not hesitate to ask.

My bookmarks menu drops down just fine, I have links in my Bookmarks Toolbar, and all links are very functional. I click on my Bookmarks menu and go to any link saved in my favorites then click the link nothing happens. The same thing goes for the links in my Bookmarks Toolbar. The only way I can get any links to work is to click and drag them into a new tab. This is not how a web browser should function. Can anyone please help me?

Hello,

I'm trying to change the default text direction in the URL bar from right to left (in FF RTL locals).

Replacing

html|input.urlbar-input:-moz-locale-dir(rtl) {

 direction: ltr !important;
 text-align: right !important;

}

with

html|input.urlbar-input {

 direction: ltr !important;
 text-align: left !important;

}

in chrome\browser\content\browser\browser.css does change the direction.

However, I can not achieve that with userChrome.css. Is it possible to override the "important!" rule in the source file with userChrome.css?

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser
